Join the network of campaigners who make Fairtrade happen across the UK in their communities.

Fairtrade supporters across the country have joined together to make their town, city, village, island, borough, county, zone, district or region a Fairtrade Town and to make a commitment to supporting Fairtrade and using licensed products with the FAIRTRADE Mark.

Over 600 communities across the UK have achieved Fairtrade status since Garstang became the first Fairtrade Town in the the world in 2001. 

In 2019, Fairtrade Campaigners reached over 1.5 million people at 16,000 local events. Find out more about the impact of Fairtrade communities in the 2019 Fairtrade Communities: Your Impact report.
